        Notes:

        As you will see from the myriad versions we've offered on our site, this recipe from friend and chocolate educator Genevieve Leloup of Chocomotions is endlessly customizable. It is a family recipe she ate as a child and still eats today; inspired by her Swiss mom and “Bircher-Muesli.”

        • For a Firmer Texture: Pour the oats in milk as soon as you wake. Soak for about 2 hours.
        • Milk or Mylk: actually, you can choose any liquid you like – they should all work! I’ve been enjoying Three Trees Organic Almond Milk (only 2 ingredients!).

            Food for Thought:

            For a completely plant-based breakfast, use plant-based milk and yogurt instead of dairy. If you make this substitution, watch out for:

            • Added Sugars: plant-based or flavored milks and especially yogurt tend to add a lot of sugar. These days, sugar has so many different names that I’ve given up looking at the Ingredients List. Instead, I check the Nutrition Facts Panel for “Added Sugars” for the fastest way to compare the relative health of products before making my choice.
            • Added Fats: Plant-based milks like Oat or Pea are known to be very creamy. The makers add oils like Rapeseed (Oatly, Oat Milk) or Sunflower Oil (Ripple, Pea Milk) to give a richer, creamier mouthfeel. If you’re looking for a low sugar, minimal ingredients milk alternative with no added fat, try unsweetened, organic Westsoy Soy Milk or almond milk by Malk Organics or Three Trees.

            Nutrition:

              In calculating the nutrition for this recipe, I used whole milk and plain, full fat yogurt (not Greek yogurt).
